Not only does it have the best value in the area, it's a featured property in the annual Open House Treasure Hunt!
I will be holding the open house this Saturday from 1-4 pm. Come and see this wonderful home and "hunt for treasure" at the same time! There will be door prizes and you'll receive an entry into the Treasure Hunt prize pool!

And that’s where The Cascade Team — in partnership with the Children’s Hospital Guild Association and several area merchants — comes in. Throughout the month of April, agents from The

The Seattle City Council votes today on whether to allow taller buildings and denser construction in 27 Seattle neighborhoods while adopting new requirements for developers to help create affordable housing.
But if it passes the vote, exactly which neighborhoods are being impacted and how? Well, the short answer is it's complicated. Many different zones and many different areas in each zone are impacted differently. There's a lot to sort out.
However, there is a website that the city provided that has that information on an interactive GIS map. You can see on the map which areas are in the plan, down to the block. You can also zoom in and click on certain areas to see the detail of the plan for that specific area. You can even enter in your address
